Prism Magazine Contest

Postby riverwriter » Sun Jan 09, 2011 3:32 pm

The deadline for PRISM international's Short Fiction and Poetry Contests is fast-approaching! The entry fee for each contest is $28 (additional entries can be added for $7 each). Every participant receives a one-year subscription to PRISM international.

The Short Fiction Contest deadline is January 29, 2011. A $2000 grand prize is awarded for the best original, unpublished story and the winner also receives publication payment in the Fiction and Poetry Contest Issue. Three runner-up prizes of $200 are also conferred. Works of translation are eligible. Our fiction judge this year is John K. Samson, lead singer of The Weakerthans and founding member of Arbeiter Ring Publishing.

The Poetry Contest also has a deadline of January 29, 2011. A $1000 grand prize is awarded for the best original, unpublished poem and the winner also receives publication payment in the Fiction and Poetry Contest Issue. $300 and $200 are awarded to the runners-up. One entry may include up to three, single-spaced poems, and works of translation are eligible. This year's poetry judge is Vancouver poet laureate, Brad Cran. He is a contributing editor at Geist magazine, and you can read some of his work on their site.

Contest entries must be sent to PRISM through snail mail, accompanied by an entry form and cheque or receipt of credit card payment. For entry forms and the option to pay fees by credit card, please visit Prism's contest page.

Awesome! I often wonder where to find things like this. Thank you for posting it. Is there any resource or site to find these types of things that you know of? ~WS

is an interesting resource for writers. Although it is designed as an online resource to help writers keep track of submissions, it seems to me that I have seen contests mentioned there among the descriptions of various publishers.

is another poetry forum that is quite into the contest loop.

Another way to find poetry contests is to use a search engine and search for the term "poetry contest".

(Says he, hoping that our faithful Zeugma members will not be tempted away by the flashing lights and fancy footwork of these other sites.)
